NORWICH – This weekend saw another successful Relay for Life at the Chenango County Fairgrounds. Organizer Marie DeSarro said by the end of the American Cancer Society fundraiser, participants had collected $152,000 for the cause with still more donations likely before Aug. 31.
There were approximately 675 participants at this year’s Relay, spanning 50 teams. Out of those 50 teams, 31 teams have raised more than $1000 and according to DeSarro, that number may rise as more money is donated. The theme for this year’s Relay, Chenango’s 15, was “The Greatest Cause on Earth.” Many teams took part by dressing in circus costumes.
